military search and seizure
Search and seizure by persons in military service. During a state of war or after martial law has been declared, officers engaged in the military service may lawfully arrest anyone who, from information before them, they have reasonable cause to believe is engaged in opposing the Government, and may order a house to be forcibly entered and searched when there are reasonable grounds for supposing such person may be there concealed. No more force, however, can be used than is necessary to accomplish the purpose. 47 Am J1st Search § 5.
